apetito has announced its new selection of Christmas meals, which includes salmon en croute parcels, brie and cranberry turnovers, curried parsnip soup, and mincemeat bars.
The new range, developed by apetito’s team of in-house chefs and dietitians, has been designed to ensure that residents can enjoy festive meals and treats whatever their dietary requirements. The new items on the menu join apetito’s current classics such as roast turkey with pigs in blankets, and Christmas pudding.
For residents with dysphagia, apetito’s texture modified range of Level 4, 5, and 6 meals, which includes pureed festive pudding and sticky toffee pudding, are designed to ensure that everybody can be a part of the festivities.
Richard Woodward, general manager of apetito’s care homes’ division, said: “We know that Christmas is one of the most loved times of the year and we want residents to be able to enjoy the taste of Christmas. That’s why we are excited to be able to offer our brand-new festive dishes alongside the traditional favourites that we know residents love.
“We’ve worked hard to ensure there is something for every care home resident in our Christmas range. Whether that is our Level 4 pureed festive pudding or our brie and cranberry turnovers and mincemeat bars which are packed with the flavours of Christmas and are a perfect addition to a care home Christmas party or Boxing Day buffet.”
